Best avoided - It sounds as if it could be hydogenated if it is sold boxed - "The melting point of hydrogenated coconut oil is 97???104 ??F (36???40 ??C)"wikipedia.

There have been a few threads about cheats and popcorn, but I am curious about the 'best' way to do it. Not so much about alternatives, or the psychology of cheat days. One of my pleasures when going to the movies is popcorn. I know it is bad for... (more)

Popcorn has been so hard to give up. I had some at a movie a while ago, and I did a calorie deficit and followed it with a long walk. Was it optimal? Probably not, but the point is to make overall beneficial changes, not torment ourselves.

Unfortunately, it's not the process, as the corn itself which is excluded from most of the paleo/primal diets. Even sweet corn-on-the-cob is an artificially bred product and most modern strains are so far away from their origins that they're... (more)

This has to be clutching at straws! These scientists are claiming that popcorn hold more antioxidants than fruit. How can this be possible? My understanding is that corn doesn't have any real nutrients at all? But these guys seem to think its full... (more)

Here's my favorite sentence from that article.... "One serving of popcorn will provide more than 70% of the daily intake of whole grain."

I would continue as normal -- just pick up with my regular healthy diet right where I left off. I find that fasting after a big mistake can lead to binges, because then I'm extra-hungry on top of feeling guilty and gross, which makes tripping up... (more)
